I went to see Dr. Nelson at SMMC/Advent health. He was so easy to talk to! He honestly listened to me about the problems I am having with my sleep disorder, and everything that goes along with it. He explained to me clearly what I didn't understand. He took his time talking with me, was very thorough, and very caring. I am very glad I chose Dr. Nelson to see about this, as it affects my whole life. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing help with sleep problems.
